Android: Mobile Printing

 

The email printing option supplements the more robust laptop printing option. You'll get best results if you use your laptop.

If you need to print from a mobile device, you can send the document to the printer by email. You must attach the document in order for it to print (e.g., you cannot send a link to a file that's in Google Drive).

  • Printouts are only available in black and white
  • Printouts are duplex by default. This cannot be changed.
  • The body of the email is NOT available for printing.
  • Full time Wharton student accounts are already set up for email printing.
  • Class Account students can register their email addresses (see directions for registering)
  • Additional personal email addresses may be registered (see directions for registering)

Print a Document

  1. Attach the document you would like to print to an email and send it to: print@wharton.upenn.edu
  2. When your document is ready, you will receive an email notification with the subject line: EmailPrint Notification: All of your documents are ready for release.
    • You must receive the email before you go to the printer. Otherwise your document may not be available at the printer.
    • The larger the attachment, the longer it will take to render and become available to print. Please allow enough time to for your document to render.
  3. Go to a printer and release your job as usual. If you added any information to the email body, you'll see two documents:
      • The body of the email (listed as "Email: [Subject]")
      • The attachment, listed by its name
